About Me


As a pediatrician, I have the opportunity to be the first provider contact a child has with the medical field. This is a role I don't take lightly. I enjoy educating parents and patients and providing comfort while they are in the hospital.

I view every patient as an individual, even if they may have the same illness. People, situations and emotions are unique to each family, and I try my best to remember that with every room I enter.

I was selected as resident of the year for 2018 as well as resident of the month for May 2016 and April 2017 at the University of Chicago Comer Children’s Hospital. I’ve also co-authored several research publications.

During my free time, I like to sample all the good food around Cincinnati and take long walks with my dog.
